Robert De Niro's ex-aide sued for misusing funds and 'TV bingeing'

A production company owned by US actor Robert De Niro is suing a former employee who it accuses of misusing funds and watching Netflix at work. The lawsuit claims she spent lavishly on personal expenses, used De Niro's airline points for personal travel and rarely came to the office. "Robinson's position required Mr De Niro to place full faith, trust and confidence in her that she would carry out her duties and responsibilities in Canal's best interests, mindfully overseeing the finances and other employees," the lawsuit said. She later drafted a recommendation letter for herself, but De Niro refused to sign it, according to lawyers for Canal Productions. De Niro is starring in a Martin Scorsese directed film, the Irishman, alongside actors Al Pacino and Joe Pesci.
